My work is definitely universal in the sense of my inspiration and thinking.
Do you think that jewelry is being standardized? What is there of local and universal in your artistic work?
In general jewelry is definitely being standardized – yes. Only if you are aware that there are different fields of jewelry, which are not all commercial in the first place – then no. My work is definitely universal in the sense of my inspiration and thinking.

What do you expect when exposing your work to the public (for example with an exhibition)?
I expect an reaction. Good or bad. That means my jewelry communicates.

Are other areas besides the jewelry, present in your work?
Yes. Fashion, contemporary art and architecture.

The last work, book, film, that has moved me was...
I loved the whole costume design and screen design of the movie "The Great Gatsby“.

A place, space, country whose creativity surprises me...
New York City – not surprised me but inspired me.

Is there any designer, jeweller, artist, you appreciate a lot?
Zaha Hadid, Phoebe Philo, Victor&Rolf, Hussein Chalayan, Otto Künzli, Karl Fritsch, Jürgen Teller, Jeff Koons, Donald Judd, Damien Hirst, Marc Rothko, Piet Mondrian, Oliver Rousteing...

What piece or work has given you the most satisfaction?
My brillant ring series.
